Let’s understand how to create a dashboard with multiple input parameters and a submit button showing multiple visualizations with an example.
We will take sample travel data in this use case to create a dashboard showing two reports i.e. Employee-wise Expense and Destination-wise expense on selection of three input parameters i.e. Mode of payment, Booking platform & Travel type.
The final output of the dashboard will look something like this:
The first step is to create the two reports i.e. Employee-wise Expense and Destination-wise expense using ‘Reports’ tab. Make sure that you apply three filters i.e. Mode of payment, Booking platform & Travel type with some default value to both the reports. Save these reports separately in the file repository by giving some suitable names.
Now open the dashboard designer and drag those two reports into the canvas.
Click on the filter icon of any of the reports and select all three filters (by clicking) which would open 3 select boxes
Make sure that the dashboard variables for each of these select boxes are selected.
Now add a button from the Objects tab by double-clicking on Button icon
Check mark the reports which are to be triggered after clicking on the submit button
Click on the edit icon of report and make sure that nothing is selected in listeners section
Now click on Add input and add all the input parameter names corresponding to their input values and click on save
Repeat the same for the other report.
Now you could see that selecting parameters and clicking on submit button shows changes in the reports.
